In 2013, five physician groups came together for a common goal: to preserve and protect private medical practice in southern Connecticut. As they noticed rising costs and complexity drove more and more physicians away from independent practices and into employer-physician relationships with large medical systems, something was being lost. Autonomy—and frequently job satisfaction—were being replaced by bureaucracy and a corporate mindset. PACT MSO, LLC takes care of business operations so physicians and their offices can focus on providing quality medical care.

Today, PACT (Physicians Alliance of Connecticut) is a multi-specialty group of private practices led and operated by more than 29 physician owners including more than 90 providers. PACT covers multiple specialties with a strong focus on primary care physicians. Its divisions include internal medicine, family practice, general and colorectal surgery, orthopaedics, nephrology, and gastroenterology. For the patient, PACT offers high-quality, compassionate care with the goals of patient satisfaction and the best possible medical outcomes.

As a physician-owned and managed business, PACT not only allows physicians to run their own practices, it gives them a say in how PACT is run day-to-day. Every owner has an equal voice and one equal vote. The alliance allows new and current members the independence of a private practice with the support of a large medical group.

There are a wide range of member advantages. PACT stays in front of industry changes and anticipates new requirements and opportunities, avoiding regulatory complications. PACT brings much needed stability to private medical practices by helping member physicians maintain or increase business levels.  Other benefits include implementation and training on the NextGen electronic health records system and discounted rates on group malpractice insurance.

PACT's growth plans include further refining its processes, as well as expanding membership levels to ensure the organization's longevity. PACT's goal is to keep its growth realistic while maintaining an exceptional level of service for its patients. Recent expansion includes the PACT Lab, which is in partnership with a nationally recognized laboratory allowing same-day turn-around for lab results.
